At the Masters, Koepka was in the penultimate group, and missed a makeable birdie putt to allow Woods to make bogey to win.

Now in the US Open, exactly the same thing happens, only it's Woodland instead of Woods.

I wanted Brooks to win. I’ll never see someone win 3 in a row in my lifetime.

What a chip by Woodland on 17, from the green no less. He deserves it...but damn. I wanted 3 in a row.

He still has the PGA he can do 3 in a row.

Not the same, since Hagen won 4 in a row.

Pitch out of the rough on 11

Approach on 14

Pitch on 17

Now putt on 18 for a win going away.

That was some round.

CONGRATS to the Woodland family on Father's day.

Congratulations to GW. Very very gutsy. Especially with BK breathing down his neck.

I have to say that this time and day, in the post Tiger dominance era there is not a more impressive player than Koepka.

Congrats to woodland.  Dude needs to get a look for Team USA, seems pretty unflappable to me under pressure

69

Two under

Yet that round was a historic round.

Excellent play.

Remarkable recovery shots.

Championship play like you just rarely see.

Just Amazing.

So did Woodland mean to hit that chip on 17 so hard off the downslope? I didn't notice it until I saw a couple of replays, but it hit the downslope between the two sections of the green and took a huge hop forward.

He can still win three in a row at the USO. Just has to start over. Wouldn't put anything past the guy.

Congrats to Woodland. It was just his week. Like I said, he's a very similar player to Koepka, he just doesn't have the major resume like Brooks has. Tournaments-wise, you could say he does.

Spieth had a good run there in 2015-16. Had a run of 5 majors where he went 1st-1st-4th-2nd-1st. And that 4th was one shot out of the playoff. Now comes the hard part for Brooks. He's been driving on adrenaline trying to prove doubters wrong and he's had an amazing run. Now he has to keep it going and try and win more majors and also win some PGA Tour events. Spieth had that hot stretch, too, but then lost the mojo.

Yes. There's a long way from that slope to the hole. And if he flew it farther, it still grabs but doesn't kick as hard, so it works out too.

Jeez, I would never try to hit a downslope like that. Too many variables. But I'm not a pro, and I don't play on greens like Pebble's.

Like I said, he could have landed it anywhere from there, to a bit short, to well long. He had a big area in which to land the ball.

Got it. As long as he lands it on or a bit past the downslope, he's fine. I wasn't thinking that. I was just thinking, holy crap, that took a huge first bounce.
